The Skye in June, is a tale about the MacDonalds, a Scottish family, and their youngest child, June, who has an uniqueness that attracts unusual people. After a tragedy the MacDonalds emigrate from Scotland to San Francisco. The father controls his family through abuse threatening his daughters, "Doomed to hell, every last one of you."The family implodes when June is drawn into the world of mysticism and, along with her three sisters, come of age during the colorful circa 1960's. It is a story of reconciliation and acceptance.

Anyone who loves a good read of San Francisco's history during the late 1950's and early days of the '60's, will enjoy this story. Ms. Ahern uses the rich history of Eureka Valley (The Castro) by weaving her story around well-known businesses such as The Castro Theater and Cliffs' Variety Store. The story is also rich with nuances of Scottish culture and language. The sisters are lively, funny and rebellious as they find ways to deter their father from having control over them. The story takes readers through issues of family, their bond and how it changes over the years, religion, as wells as the challenges of immigrants, and the world of mysticism.
